I had a crazy 3 day weekend but nevertheless I was able to knock down three more mics. The price of reaching goals are priceless. So from work to mic I went at times it seemed as if the mic was an electronic energy drink that wouldn’t let me sleep…!
My fourth mic was on Friday July 13, 2012 at a poetry set called “Strictly for the listener’s”. Where a host of my poet brothers and sisters unified to hear testaments amplified, emotions released, and worries find peace.
My fifth mic was Sunday morning/evening July,15,2012 at a community based event at the Mosque Maryam located on the east side Chicago. This ORGANIZATION had several people of different backgrounds unite for one common good which is FIGHTING 4 A CRIME FREE COMMUNITY. Some people danced to be heard, some played instruments, and of course I sprayed lyrics to rewrite the story of the untold along with my P.O.E.T sister’s Zakeia, J.Butta, Spirit, and Imani Truth. See as an artist there is more than just creating music we have to be conscious on what we stand for. I rather be an asset to the community than a hindrance, and that is why I carefully select what I say and how I say it.
My sixth mic was the conclusion of my hectic weekend ended Sunday night / Monday morning on July 15/16, 2012 at a ALL white poetry event hosted by RexLex Productions. This night I allowed my ears to transform into receivers as I tentatively listened to the talent that hit the stage. I performed my hot 16 live to with a band called HD well I will call them H for now I borrowed their D (Drummer) to pull my show off. Photo’s and a live video is below I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Ladies in gentleman I would like to leave you with something dreams come true if your dream is long distance just keep calling and I’m sure one day it will be answered.
